Good luck with your new cancer!

One of our techs has recently graduated from Respiratory Therapy school, and as such is changing jobs, leaving us.

A card was circulated for people to well-wish upon, and I wrote something along the lines of “good luck with your new career”. My handwriting isn’t terribly good.

Shortly after the card was presented, I started getting some odd questions, like, ‘does respiratory therapy make you more likely to get cancer’? to which I of course said no. (?Why would they ask me that?).

Finally someone asked me why I’d wished her luck on her new cancer; after I figured out my penmanship deficit, all was forgiven, but I agree that’d be odd to see in your farewell card.


  1. You should have had your scribe write it!

  2. Most people actually don’t want me to handwrite anything, so you’re right!

  3. Now that is funny.

    Congratulations – you must have made A+ in “Doctor’s Handwriting 101”.
    Uncle Ron didn’t even have to take it, and he can’t write either!
